Employers with insurance policies written under the Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Assigned Risk Pool (Pool) may receive credits of up to 15 percent of their insurance premium when they participate in a Qualified Loss Management Program (QLMP). QLMP is administered by the Workers’ Compensation Rating and Inspection Bureau.


Employers with insurance policies written under the Pool may receive credits of up to 15 percent of their insurance premium when they participate in a QLMP. QLMP is administered by the Workers' Compensation Rating and Inspection Bureau. QLMP is designed to help employers significantly improve workplace safety and reduce their losses due to accidents, drug use, and other workplace incidents. The participating employer may receive the credit for a period of up to 4 years to their premium if they subscribe to a qualified loss management firm and remain in such firm's Loss Management Program during that period.

Employers taken out of the Pool on a Large Deductible Program, Large Risk Rating Option or other voluntary market retrospective rating plan, are not eligible for credits under QLMP.
